At Plate & Pattern we carefully choose materials that mimic current style trends and select patterns to compliment every occasion. Our goal is to help you serve with style and ease! 

The Plates

We chose seagrass as the material for our woven plates because it is an eco-friendly, renewable, marsh-growing reed. These plates are strong and beautiful, with a casual, coastal feel that adds texture and warmth to your table décor. The wood bottom board is made from eco-friendly wood fiber and provides a more stable eating surface - you can even cut on these plates with a knife! Like all handwoven basketry crafted by artisans, you may notice slight variations in your plates.

Galvanized metal was an easy choice for plates because of its increasing popularity in homes of all styles and its ability to provide a neutral palette on which to layer any color or design. It is an essential material in modern farmhouse design, and we love its rustic, industrial look. The rivets along the top rim add character to these super durable plates and they look great with any of our liners.

Our white metal plates were added to our collection after repeated requests. Made of the same versatile, durable metal as our galvanized plates, these have a glossy white finish which creates a fresh, clean look to showcase any of our beautiful liner patterns. They are perfect in any style home and are easy to pack up for a beach trip, picnic, or a day on the boat.

The Liners

All of our plates must be used with a liner, and we have two different styles to choose from: our original, flat liners (also great for lining trays and platters) and our preformed liners that are made of a heavier duty parchment and are already formed in the shape of the plate. Both are made with 100% genuine vegetable parchment, a natural, biodegradable product with a super smooth finish. Free from impurities like starch, gelatin, casein, and formaldehyde, this material has excellent fat and water-resistant properties.

One parchment paper liner is enough to withstand cutting, and can handle sauces, dressings, and salsas beautifully. We use food grade dye for all designs and include a “starter set” of 20 classic white parchment paper liners with the purchase of all plate sets.
